Volunteer at the Downtown Showdown!

Community Service Hours!

Saturday, May 21, 2016

The Downtown Showdown KDW is an event that has been inspired by our great friend Scott Terry who was tragically killed in a car accident in February of 2014. Scotty was an avid fisherman and often spoke about hosting a unique fishing tournament in Palm Beach County. The tournament will take place in the downtown West Palm Beach Waterfront on Flagler Drive between North and South Clematis Street. This year’s event will be more of a family event than just a fishing tournament. There will be live music, local artists and vendors, local businesses and Flagler Dr. will host several boat manufacturers displaying their amazing boats, wing competition, along with the magnificent and exotic cars and a KID ZONE!

We expect approximately 150 registered boats to fish the tournament this year, and thousands of spectators to come enjoy the show.

We are excited to get High School Students involved in this awesome community event this year! There are several opportunities for students to earn community service hours:

(1)KIDS ZONE – The event will have a Kids Zone area with activities and stations including games provided by Jupiter Bounce, Face Painting, Balloon Artists, Casting ponds, Star Wars Character Meet-n-Greet. We would love for volunteers to help man the different activities to make sure the kids are playing safely and having fun!

(2)EVENT AUCTION ITEMS – The Downtown Showdown will host a silent auction at their Captains meeting prior to the event. We are looking for students who would like to help seek donations of products or services that we could use on this night. Examples include gift certificates, jewelry, gift baskets, art work, salon services, fishing items or products. I include this list only for ideas, but is no way meant to limit the items. Practically anything of interest as long as it is new (not used).

(3)RAFFLE TICKET SALES – We would LOVE if students could assist in selling RAFFLE TICKETS during the event! Proceeds from RAFFLE earnings will benefit the wonderful organizations mentioned above!

(4)EVENT ASSISTANCE- As you can image, a lot of work goes into setting up an event like this. We will need help with things such as packaging auction items, filling captains buckets, as well as event set up and break down.

Details:
It would be a good idea to get there between 11:30 and 11:45am (around 5:30 – 5:45pm March 25). We park in the South Jupiter Community Park parking lot, to get there, stay on Parkside Dr, go past the stadium and then turn right on Frederick Small Rd (you will start to wonder if you have gone to far and then there will be a stop sign with a turn lane), the park will be on your left and the first stop sign. There will be golf carts taking volunteers to and from the skate park, just say you are with Palm Beach Children’s Hospital volunteering for the 50/50 raffle and you would like to go to gate B. Once there you may need to show your Eventbrite ticket to the checker and again say you are a 50/50 raffle volunteer. Once in, go to the left and we will have a table set up near the entrance with an Alliance For Kids banner and a 50/50 monitor set up.

I will be checking everyone in and giving you either a vest or a shirt to wear for the day. I will also give you your food voucher! What you will be doing is wearing a pink shirt or vest and holding up a sign with the 50/50 raffle information on it and who it supports. Volunteers always need to be by a Roger Dean employee wearing an orange shirt that says 50/50 raffle. The are the ones that take the money and can print off raffle tickets. We typically get done around 3:30pm (should be 9:30pm on March 25).

We will have waters and snacks at the table, make sure you are coming back every once in a while to hydrate. I have sunscreen as well but it’s a good idea to apply beforehand as we are in the sun for about 4 hours straight.

Palm Beach County Food Project Update

On Saturday, February 13, 2016, together we collected 427 bags = 6405 pounds.  This is over 3 tons of food that we dropped off at the clubhouse in Martinique!

The total for the entire project when all areas collecting were totaled came to 18,300 pounds = over 9 tons of food.  This is quite an accomplishment!

On that note, what we need to remember is that CROS Ministries  (Christians Reaching Out To Society) distributes around 120,000 pounds of food every month to the 6 established CROS pantries in Palm Beach County.  You can see that what we are collecting is but a small part of what its needed.  Note: CROS gets food from other organizations as well.  Pantries are still running out of food and having to turn away those in need of food.  We are making a difference, but we need to expand our efforts.  It is reported that over 230,000 people in PBC go hungry every day and of that number 30,000 are children and 40,000 are seniors.

View our latest video showing testimonials from people from “all walks of life” that have benefited from these pantries.
